Thread Name: Review: D'Addario Strings
Subject: RE: Review: D'Addario Strings
I've noticed D'Addario strings often don't give me the balanced tone I used to remember. Not sure if it's the strings that changed or just me. But the best damn strings I've ever used are by Curt Mangan. He makes them all by hand in Colorado. The tone is unmatched, the strings have a lot of play in them, they respond real well to all the subtle dynamics of touch, and they last a real long time. I highly recommend them. You can probably find his contact info online, but I just call Main Street Music in Beacon, NY and have them ship me a few sets every once in a while.
